Scheduling logjam and players’ mental fatigue: ISL in a catch-22 situation as Covid cases spiral

As case after case of Covid-19 piles on in different teams in the Indian Super League (ISL), the reluctance of the organisers to postpone and conduct the league at a later date has now started to be questioned by players. Be it the Indian national team captain Sunil Chhetri on Twitter, or another national team regular in Brandon Fernandes on Instagram, the little flares of rebellion are starting to grow day by day as the league continues to function as if everything is normal. Only if you’re in the bubble, will you know how hard and frustrating this is. You’re away from family for half a year, cooped up in a room, anything outdoors is a luxury, there’s no change in setting to help you shake off a bad result – I could go on. — Sunil Chhetri (@chetrisunil11) January 15, 2022 Reach out w...

ISL: Anwar Ali getting a second chance means Indian football can hope to fill a void

A footballer suffering a cardiac arrest while playing was once a very rare occurrence. In 2003, Marc-Vivien Foe’s death on the pitch while playing Cameroon’s Confederations Cup semifinal against Colombia shook the football world. Nine years later, Fabrice Muamba suffered a near-fatal collapse during a Premier League match. And another nine years later, Christian Eriksen was miraculously brought back to life after he suffered a cardiac arrest during Denmark’s Euro 2020 game against Finland. In between, Brazilian Cristiano Junior passed away tragically on field during a Federation Cup match in Bengaluru, while playing for Dempo against Mohun Bagan. These four incidents took place over a span of 18 years. In recent weeks, however, the game has been awash with cardiac-related i...
